Harley Sportster or Triumph Bobber?

Talk about “Two Peas in a Pod”.  No two motorcycles are as similar, yet as different as these two.  On one hand, we have the classic Harley Davidson 1200cc V-Twin Sporter Forty-Eight.   Simple.  Burly.  Cool.   It’s been around for ages.

No, not selling the Magna

I’ve had messages from guys asking if I wanted to sell my Honda Magna.  The answer is a straight up no.  However if you offer me a trade… I’d trade it… for a Harley 1200 in awesome running condition and with new tires.  You have that, sure, I’ll trade you.  If not, no… I’m not selling it.  If I sell it, then my wife will take the money… if I trade, well… she doesn’t know how to ride a motorcycle.   See what I mean?  So yeah, if you have the money to buy – go buy the Harley and then come see me.  I’ll even meet you have way, and we can swap titles and keys.
